INTERACTIVE TRANSCRIPT

The Interactive Transcript Makes Your Video Searchable, SEO-Friendly, and More Engaging

Adding an interactive transcript to your website allows your users to interact with your video in an entirely new way. Users can search the video and navigate by clicking on any word to jump to that exact point. It’s also a great way to make your video accessible and broaden your audience reach with the use of translations. You’ll see a significant SEO benefit because search engines will be able to index all of the spoken content instead of just the video title and tags.

Responsive & Mobile-Friendly

Our interactive transcripts adjust to fit your screen to ensure a great UX on any device.

Compatible with Most Video Players

The interactive transcript works out of the box with many different video players, including Brightcove, Kaltura, Ooyala, Vimeo, Wistia, YouTube, Able Player, Flowplayer, HTML5, JW Player, Limelight, SoundCloud, SoundManager2, Viddler, and Video.js.

Easy Installation

An interactive transcript can be added to any website by inserting an embed code – it’s the same process as embedding a video player. You can get the embed code from your 3Play Media account after your files have been transcribed.

The embed code is dynamically generated based on your video player, features enabled, size, and styling. The transcript data and search are hosted by 3Play Media.

One Line YouTube Embed

We offer a one click option for embedding YouTube videos with interactive transcripts. This works for all YouTube videos, but is especially useful for YouTube videos you don’t own. Just click “Publish One Line YouTube Embed,” then copy the one line iframe to embed your YouTube video with an interactive transcript!

Customization

You can control the size, choose different skins, turn features on and off, and customize through standard CSS styling. Visit the interactive transcript gallery to see examples of how to implement, use, and customize.

Our robust SDK allows developers to create more advanced custom uses, such as this interactive children’s audiobook.

Video SEO

Search engines can’t crawl videos to understand how to rank them in search results. A great way to make your video more searchable is to leverage your video transcript. With one click, you can add our SEO embed along with your interactive transcript plugin so that search bots can index your content.
